I am watching MTV right now (Pimp my ride) and I just saw this commercial which I keep seeing millions of times.

Its the Sophie Albou/Target commercial that markets her line of clothing in Target stores with that god damn cheesy french accent. Pisses me off.

The Progressive Insurance commercials tick me off also.

With that dude whos talking about how they show their rates and competitors, just STFU and let the person decide. And the "Progressive Drive" plan that can only be bought at agents.

That's all fine and dandy, but do they ever say what the heck Head On is for? No, and that drives me up the wall!  banghead

Everything Geico, AFLAC, Puritan's Pride, Stock Brokers, public service announcements (e.g. on why you shouldn't smoke or why you can only drink until you're 21, etc.), government propaganda (here in Costa Rica), etc.

I get ABC, CBS and NBC from afiliates in DEN, so I do tend to get exposed with some serious advert crap, along with the usual Costa Rican adverts.

I find the Geico ones to be funny.

The Aflac ones are annoying.

Funny adverts are from ESPN Sportscenter. Especially the one with the guy riding his skateboard in the staircase and then the guy parking his car in Danica Patrick's assigned space..."It was an honest mistake" hehe.

So I add to the list Wal-Mart back to school commercial with rap music.
Also Daimler Chrysler with "Ask Dr. Z" god damn it.
Another bad ones is the Kia SUV "Whats Americas #1 rated SUV with the #1 warranty" STFU it is a KIA.

Have you seen those new Got Milk commercials? They were funny at first now they're getting annoying, they're taking too long of showing the whole story line. I think now they have taken the cow in the spaceship and they're not showing anymore.

I also despise the late night chat lines that imply slightly-mannish out-of-work strippers who likely tell people they're "actresses" so that people don't think they're "whores" for having obnoxiously large hooter implants are having wonderful, meaningful conversations on the phone instead of going out to bars.

Girls Gone Wild infomercials. Yep. They're young, nubile and willing to do anything, but why not just Google-up some porn on the web and save some cash?

Your watching what, and complaining about commercials? MTV Pimp My Ride, ok, well, anything on todays MTV, ESPECIALLY that Sweet 16 crap, has commercials for only one reason, to provide some sort of entertainment value to its viewers, because they sure aren't doing it with their current lineup!  duck

I would have to agree that it is just plain annoying, but on the other hand, their campaign has worked, and you know the brand, how to use it, and what it does!
